Mumbai Indians, eyeing a record fifth IPL title, will take on Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League 2020 final at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday. Speaking ahead of the summit clash, Mumbai Indians' all-rounder Kieron Pollard compared the magnitude of an IPL final with a World Cup final. Mumbai Indians posted a video on Instagram on the morning of the final where Pollard and Mahela Jayawardene shared their views on the season and spoke about the IPL final. The West Indies all-rounder mentioned that while there is no crowd for the summit clash but he feels that an IPL final is as big a game as a World Cup final.
"The name of the game is pressure in a final. Everyone takes that pressure, you want to win, you don't want to make a mistake. But at the end of the day, you have to try and take it as a normal game. Just go out there and enjoy yourself and the atmosphere. Obviously, now no crowds in this final, but enjoy the magnitude of the game. It is the IPL final, it's the biggest thing after the World Cup final," Pollard said in a video posted by MI.
